Your neighbours on the Palm will be mostly high-earning, professional expatriates as well as fair-weather, second-home residents from all over the world. Singles inhabit the many buildings that line the Palm’s trunk, as well as serviced hotel apartments along the crescent.
Singles are less likely to reside in the large, well-appointed villas of the Palm’s fronds, which are more often the domicile of well-off families that enjoy back yards that open directly onto the beach.
You will also find young families strolling along the many parks along the beach.
Residents of the Palm are vocal about living on an iconic, man-made island, including direct beach access and the outdoor fitness facilities! If you enjoy the beach and outdoor running tracks, you’re also likely to appreciate the Palm.
Families also appreciate the children’s play areas and the safe environment of the Palm, as well as the large units that provide a bit of extra room for their families to grow into.
With the beach at your doorstep and palm trees lining the fairy-lit running track, the Palm really offers a holiday feel to a residential luxury neighbourhood. Adding to this feel of a bespoke lifestyle, is the extensive list of shops, restaurants, and bars that are available within a few minutes walk of many of the buildings along the Palm’s trunk.
Don’t feel like going out? Residents also love the speed of shop deliveries, bringing anything and everything direct to your doorstep.
Life on the Palm is not all fun and games. The high rental prices may appeal only to those who are committed to the beach-front lifestyle. Some residents also complain of having limited car-free access outside of their immediate areas, and lament the isolation that the Palm provides.
Growth of residential options in this community has not come without its challenges, in the form of constant construction that can be both a cause of eyesores and occasional traffic delays.
Hopping around the various bars, cafes, hotels and beaches can sometimes be hectic for those who have no cars, especially during summer!
The trunk offers a luxurious apartment lifestyle with the Golden Mile and Shoreline developments. Mini-developments like Tiara, Oceana and Marina Residences are high-rise communities offering 1 to 4 bedroom options.
The frond villas vary in design with mid-sized family homes to large opulent mansions with their own beach access.
Between peaceful morning strolls along the beach, lunch at one of the many beach clubs, and dinner at a restaurant within one of the many five star hotels, residents really do not need to leave the Palm in order to dine and be entertained.
Residents can enjoy incredible sunsets while walking on the boulevard along the beach.
